Morpeth Harrier Rory Leonard took part in the British Athletics Cross Challenge at Cardiff last weekend, the event the opening fixture of the 2019/20 British Athletics Cross Challenge series.

Enjoying his first competitive run out for a while, Leonard confessed to being a little race rusty, only managing to get in a couple of weeks training beforehand, but still managed to finish as third Under 20 in a time of 20 minutes 5 seconds, some ten seconds behind race winner Matt Willis and second place Zakariya Mahamed. Leonard had in fact led for much of the race with little between the top three, with Wrexham AC’s Willis enjoying home support and gaining the lead in the final kilometre.

Morpeth’s Jason Dawson travelled to Amsterdam at the weekend to take part in Sunday’s annual half marathon. He had a fine run and a PB finishing in 1:22:18.
